Italian classics stop in Marshdale

Alfa Romeo club has lunch on scenic ride

Posted

An army of Alfa Romeos stopped at Marshdale Burger Co. on Sept. 4, a lunch gathering place for the drivers attending the Italian luxury car’s national convention in Colorado Springs.

About 20 of the high-performance vehicles made their way from Longmont over the Peak to Peak Highway and through Evergreen, stopping in Marshdale before heading through Deckers and Woodland Park before returning to Colorado Springs.

The restaurant was a place to have a good meal with available parking for the vintage cars, and it was right on the driving route, according to Judy Page of Evergreen, who helped organize the drive.

Though, “it’s like herding Italian cats,” she said as she stood outside the restaurant, directing the cars into the parking lot.

David Richichi, co-owner of Marshdale Burger Co., was excited that Page and her husband Michael Whitehouse asked if the restaurant could host the group.

“I’m a huge racing fan,” he said. “To be around 20 of these cars (is) pretty fan-boyish. We are also pretty excited they chose to support a new local business.”

The car club spent Labor Day weekend enjoying the sights in Colorado before the convention Sept. 7-12 in Colorado Springs.
